    Per my comment in another post, very early Friday morning.

    And, as far as the FTC is concerned, I'll make one statement: They "were" the entity responsible for policing the Fair Credit Reporting Act and FACTA (the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act) least until the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) came along...then again, according to a recent (over the past week) appeals court decision in DC, the CFPB may never have "come along" at all, at least until now.

    Summing it al up in the Cliff Notes: The FTC sucks at enforcing regulations. (So, if they're the chumps supposedly overseeing the sanctity of so-called privacy for the general public, then this whole matter is nothing short of a farce! And, yes, I work in the Personal-Private info tech sector; so, this is based upon my firsthand knowledge of these matters, which blatantly tell anyone that cares to do a deeper dive on these issues, they'll quickly learn that personal privacy is a thing of the past. Period!)
